GDPR

GDPR replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC, which determines how personal data should be processed and used on EU citizens.

It’s been designed to:

  • Combine all data protection laws across Europe
  • Strengthen data protection for all EU citizens
  • Reshape the way EU organisations approach data protection.

The regulation aims to protect all EU citizens from privacy and data breaches in an increasingly digital, data-driven world – one that’s vastly different from the time in which the 1995 directive was published.

GDPR will be enforced across the EU from 25 May 2018.
